EASY Joins the IACCM to Strengthen its Commitment to Automating Contract Management

Bury St Edmunds, UK – May 20th, 2015 – EASY Software UK , the foremost provider of Document and Content Management solutions in the UK and Europe, has today announced its membership of the International Association for Contract and Commercial Management (IACCM).

EASY SOFTWARE UK joins IACCM

The IACCM is a non-profit association helping organisations around the globe realise value and optimal outcomes from their business relationships. It harvests and shares the best practices and skills in contract and commercial management from 35,000 members spread across 14,000 organisations in 159 countries.

IACCM membership uniquely represents both the buy- and sell-side: Procurement/SRM/Supply Chain, Contracting, Commercial, Project Management and Legal professionals. According to a recent survey of its members, over 40% of contracts fail to achieve their financial targets and cost some 9% of annual turnover. Over the past three years IACCM membership has grown 30% year on year. This growth is driven by the desire across all industries to achieve optimal outcomes from business agreements in our highly networked global economy, where most of the value is created from trading relationships.

Many organisations face the challenge of managing their often mission-critical contractual relationships with both customers and suppliers using a limited range of tools that are fundamentally time consuming. These important contract documents are frequently held in multiple formats and many different locations making the already complex tasks of negotiation, compliance and renewal even more difficult to perform.

EASY Software addresses this issue of contract management with its award-winning EASY CONTRACT™ solution providing a largely pre-configured software package that comprehensively addresses the complete contract life-cycle from creation to termination using EASY Software’s extensive document management and business process experience.

“The Association’s unique expertise on the sales side of contract management, and not just the buy side, matches the capabilities within EASY Contract to drive processes around revenue opportunities as well as supplier performance and cost management, all in one single application,” commented Howard Frear, EASY Software UK’s director of sales and marketing. “Our membership will better inform us of the challenges faced by contract, supply chain and procurement professionals and further equip us to help them overcome them by refining our solution and services to meet their needs.”

Howard and the EASY team will attend the IACCM annual forum in London in June.
